It’s the last Lync Insider post of 2014! Hope everyone’s Christmas shopping is done and the workload is light.

It’s been quite a year for the blog. Add-ons coming out. Big announcements. Lots of updates & fixes. Lync is out there in a big way and getting bigger. Each month, over 20,000 readers visit the Lync Insider, and we’re grateful for all the conversations we’ve had.

Here’s a few of our most popular 2014 posts (in case you missed them!):

2 Surveys in 2 Minutes – Please Tell Us Your Lync Plans!

We’ll return to our regular posting schedule in early January. But what should we start with? What directions should we go next year?

Well, why not ask our readers these questions! If you’ll spare 2 minutes, please answer the following 2 surveys about your Lync plans. The results will inform our 2015 posting schedule.

[yop_poll id=”5″]


We had 67 votes on our last poll…can we make it to 100 for these two?

As always, if you have a question or want to share a Lync story, please comment on a post or email me. PlanetMagpie is always happy to help business users with their Lync (or other!) support issues.

I just received a comment about Chat inside an add-on, in fact. (Paul, I’ll answer your question as soon as I’m able!)

The Blog Name Change – Decision Made

Thank you again, to all of our readers. We asked you what you thought this blog should be named, since Lync itself will change its name in 2015.

After reviewing the poll results and talking it over amongst ourselves, we decided that the blog’s name will be…

The Lync Insider.

We will stay with the name you already know. But! We’ll have other changes coming to reflect the Skype for Business changes.

What will they be? Well, you’ll have to come back to find out!

Subscribe via email with the signup box at top right, for weekly post emails. Many of you already have this year…and we hope many more will join us next year!

Until then, Happy Holidays to all, and have a safe New Year.

    Like the last poll, I’m getting “you are not allowed to vote!” for both of them. ๐Ÿ™

      It seems these polls just don’t like you! I’ve checked the settings; you should be able to vote, no problem. Strange. Sorry about this! Want to register your votes here?

      If anyone experiences this error, please let me know. I’ll see if I can get a response from the plugin’s devs.

    I’m unable to vote ๐Ÿ™

    Merry Christmas!

    I’m getting the same message when I try to vote in either poll.

      Okay, I’ve reset both polls. (The plugin does not want to behave, apparently.) Everyone who was unable to vote before, please try again. If it still doesn’t work, please vote via comment. I’ll hunt up another poll plugin for next time.
